It All Comes Down to Settings: High Profile vs Low Profile
When creating a stacking set, it’s important to consider and notice the type of setting your stone is set in. Is the stone set in a high profile or a low profile?
Why is Setting Important?
The setting (high profile or low profile) will affect whether you can wear a straight or curved wedding band alongside of your engagement ring!
High profile settings, which are either basket or martini settings, need to be stacked with a straight band for a perfect fit.
A straight stacking set example is our Jana ring set (the very first picture on this blog). Do you see how the bands are fitted like they were made to be together? If you have a high profile setting, or desire one, this is a look you could have. The Anna is another ring that offers inspiration, which is pictured above. You can do something more simple and symmetrical like the Anna and have a promise band on either side of your engagement ring to make things even and matching.
Low profile settings, which includes bezel settings, need to be stacked with a curved band.
Straight bands will not work as they will create a gap between your engagement ring and your band. Some curved band options are v-shaped bands or swooped sculptural bands. For inspiration on v-shaped and swooped bands, look at our ring Boho Dreams* pictured above. Curved bands can be made as elaborate and whimsical as you would like or kept more classic, like our tiara bands.
*(The Boho Dreams' ring has a high profile setting, but this ring has v shaped and swooped sculptural bands that is needed for low profiles. So... look at these stacking bands for stacking inspo!)
As mentioned, bezel settings have a low profile setting and will need a curved band.
For inspiration, look at our Amira ring set. Also, if you’re wanting something with mixed golds, check out our Gray Diamond Stacking Rings. This could be a fun way to add versatility into your engagement ring stack.
